Re: Jerry Flannery - now banned for 6 weeks

It has been reported in the press this morning that Flannery was represented by Pat Barriscale, who I seem to remember being the chair of many citings. This seems to me to be highly inappropriate and can only lead to the impression that decisions handed down by panels are really not that fair, open ...

Re: Jerry Flannery

Yet another example of how biased the citings procedure has become.

I have lost all faith in the honesty and integrity of all those involved.

Re: Scrums, Refs, Brian Moore and all that.

I thought Nogel Owen's refereeing of the scrum and maul on Sunday was truly appalling, stopping the French from using the scrum and maul as offensive weapons, influencing the game to become more about running rugby. If teams have worked hard on their scrum and maul, as Tigers do, they should be allo...

Re: All Ospreys discussion here please!

One good thing may come fron this, that the english teams may have now come to the same conclusion that the French teams came to years ago, that the HEC organisers are either incompetent, biased or both.

Re: Johne Murphy confirmed for Munster

Good luck Johne and thanks for the memory's, yet another good young Irishman lost because of the pressure applied by the Irish selection policy. I think it is time that we stopped recruiting young Celtic players, spending time money and effort on developing them, only to see them leave when they rea...

Re: Moody "learning French, going to Paris" sez daily mail

If, and I hope it is a big if, Lewis jumps ship for France then best of luck to the lad, earn your money while you can. If you are going to go though at least go to a top team who will be competing for the major honours next year, rather than a run of the mill team who don't take the Heineken seriou...

Re: Sixteen men on pitch

I am finding it difficult to come to terms with my emotions about last week's game and the subsequent storm that has been created. On the one hand I am a little embarressed that we are challenging the result of a game that is over, as it somehow goes against the grain. On the other hand however I ha...

Re: Tigers v Bath LV Cup

Does our exit from the HC increase the importance of this game, financially speaking?

Re: Venter charged.......

I am more interested in the actions of Blackett in this sorry case. In the last week he has decided to issue 2 of the most draconian sanctions ever given to players in the history of the game, then he decides to issue one of the most lenient. In my opinion this either questions his ability or his in...

Firstly let me congratulate the board on their recent appointment of HM and lets hope he proves to be an inspired choice. That said I can't help but feel the last year has been a near total disaster both on the field and off. Whilst I accept the appointment of ML may have been the wrong one in the f...

Just a thought from left field....Noticed that the Team Manager at Wasps had moved on and been replaced but didn't say where he was going. P'raps it's role that Tigers might be thinking of instead of a Director of Rugby and so leaving the vacancy as a pure coaching role. :smt017 http://www.guinness...

my two penneth from rugby rebels: My theory, for what its worth (which isnt much), is that this chick went behind her boyfriends back with these players, willingly, then either he's hit the roof and therefore the press with it (notice she has not made any complaint) or that to cover her tracks she ...
